What to expect in our Student Ministry?

You will find adults who love God, love students, and who are intentional about making disciples for Jesus Christ. You will find students who are friendly, welcoming, and loving.

What is the mission of the Student Ministry at 12 Oaks?

To glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by making disciples who make disciples.

How do we accomplish this mission?

We believe that the Spirit of God uses the Word of God to transform lives. Thus, the Word of God is central to our ministry.  We also believe that transformation happens in the context of community.  Here is how we accomplish our mission:

-Sunday mornings we offer gender and age specific Sunday school for students to connect to other students, hear the gospel, and grow in their faith.  

-Sunday nights during the school year, we offer a student worship service. Students lead worship and our Minister of Students preaches on topics that are relevant to students.

– Wednesday nights during the school year, we offer fellowship and bible studies to help students dig deep into the Scripture that will lead them to grow in their faith..

– During the summer months, we offer camps and other service opportunities. On Wednesday nights, we have fun and fellowship!

How do parents fit in to our Student Ministry?

We recognize that youth leaders do not take the place of parents’ role to disciple their kids. While the Bible is clear that parents are the primary disciple makers of their children, we come alongside to help them do that through the ministries we offer.
